The details are emerging

It seems that the incompetence in DKs latest problem is turning out to the fact that nobody found out that he had it sooner. This means that the healthy guts have been strained and stretched somewhat, but hopefully will be back in shape by the time of the operation thanks to our new skills of administering colonic irrigation.

This morning we went to the hospital to find out what will be happening with the operation and to have DK flushed out. It took 4 litres today which seemed like rather a lot to me considering that we only use 1 at home to do it, but it's better out than in.

The operation is scheduled for 18th November and he will have to be in for a couple of days before and a week after the actual operation, until then he is not to go to day care and will need a month to 6 weeks recovery afterwards before he can start so that means he will start after Christmas

    I'm glad that DK is irrigated.
    Now that you are experts in colonic irrigation, you could set this up as a money-making side-line.
    Princess Di was a fan (careful choice of words there)
    You don't need much to set up, just good drains, I suspect - I suppose that that could be a problem.

    Didn't the fan of the sh-- hit the wall? Mixing metaphors was always dangerous!
